Never a dull moment!
For those who have asked about Mark, Suzanne says he's doing very well! I've asked if they can take a picture and send it, so we can see (hopefully!) fat little cheeks and arms and legs. Such a sweet, sweet boy! In other baby news, Suzanne is going to be a grandmother for the first time - her daughter Vita is expecting!
It is proving to be a very very rainy rainy season... I will have several opportunities this week to share the needs for Ray of Hope and Nesco, and will especially be speaking about the new building for Ray of Hope and the clothing drive. Please keep these vital needs in your prayers!
Also, I will be receiving more jewelry at the end of the month - thanks to all of you who have purchased and suggested venues! The jewelry makes GREAT gifts for any woman in your life: mother, daugher, teacher, mail carrier! Remember that 100% of the money is going back to Newezekana, which helps these women feed, clothe, and house themselves. Your contributions bring them so much more than they can get for their items in Uganda, and can mean the difference between a full and an empty belly for both themselves and their children.
Also keep in your prayers the collaboration with Samaritan's Purse and Ray of Hope. Samaritan's Purse (they do Operation Christmas Child, which many of you know, as well as many other things) has offered to fund a business, if Ray of Hope can come up with a business plan. This will be easier in the new building - but ideas so far are raising chickens, and raising poinsettas. They just need wisdom on how to use this money for the most benefit to the organization, and the children and women they help.
Have a blessed day - and thank you!!!
